Comprehensive Search Engine for Patient Search and Analysis
This function of the Hospital Management Information System deals with registering new patients, for either OPD or IPD and issuing unique identification numbers to the patients. These numbers are unique throughout the system.
A patient can be registered either at the IPD front office or at the OPD reception. The OPD or IPD identification number is also created for each of the patient's separate visits. This also serves as a part of patient registration. The IPD/OPD ID is used for tracking the medical records of the patient for that particular OPD visit or IPD admission. All medical records of the patient are identified by a combination of numbers, i.e. Patient ID and OPD/IPD ID. The numbers allow for a flexible search in terms of finding the patient's history record.
OPD / IPD Investigation Cases
This module of the Hospital Management System deals with all kinds of investigations suggested by doctors. The function enables the entry of investigations /procedures for a particular patient. The entered investigations are rooted through the billing/cash office and once the patient pays for the investigations, the entries of the same go to their respective diagnostics centers. This flow is not compulsory for IPD patients since the billing for IPD patients is done at the time of discharge. Investigation requisition is created and printed with function and the same is available at respective diagnostics centers for the preparation of reports.

Once the admission of the patient is completed, an IPD identification number is created by the system for that particular admission of the patient.
